It's preview day again!

Murk, Champion of the Swamp Orcs

Murk, one of the Champions to be found in Bellor's Retribution, adds something new to the Swamp Orc arsenal: he gets an offensive advantage when his target is adjacent to a Vine Wall.  (Compare him to Glarg and Hunters, who get an advantage for being on or moving on or off of a Vine Wall.)  Combine that with his ranged attack, and Murk becomes a tempting choice for the SO deck-builders. 

Vomitus, Champion of the Filth

Now I have to admit that Vomitus is the most disgusting-looking Unit in the Filth, and that's really saying something.  But he is also really cool!  He is a perfect complement to his earlier colleague the Abomination: the Abomination has a variable Attack Value, and Vomitus a variable range, both of which are rolled for at the beginning of the Attack Phase.  At his best moments, Vomitus can shoot farther than any other Unit in the game.  Look for him in Saella's Precision.

Until next week!

Ooh! I really like how Vomitus complements the Abomination.

But Murk...I'm not sure if I'll use him. He seems clunky to use without Swamp Beasts, and they're expensive.

Great artwork for Murk. Vomitus just freaks the crap out of me. Ew. But decent ability.

Seems totally impossible to plan for.

I really like Murk but he seems short for an orc.

I love the look of Vomitus but his inconsistency means the same thing it did for the Abomination, he won't see any play in my deck.

Just roll like I do. I have yet to roll below a 4 for Abominations power. That's only from 4 games though. ;)

I love the randomness of Vomitus. I like characters that keep you and your opponent guessing.

I think Murk should say, "When Murk attacks a Unit that is" and not "that it is". Oh and Vomitus looks like an overdone Spew Mutation on an Anointed Common. Can anybody say "baldhead on the cover of Saella's Precision"? :p

I just realized that Vomitus is a champion and not a mutation. Definitely useful to replace the Spew Mutant by being a sniper.

ZeeJr commented:

These two are a good pair to preview together. Notice how they have the same stats and cost. And basically, they're both ranged. Vomitus will shoot at least 3 spaces (like all the other ranged units) at least 66% of the time.

Murk is going in instead of Blerg, and Vomitus is going in instead of Abom. Really happy abut both these units.

I'd like to see Her and Anointed. And maybe another Swamp orc champ.

Wow, both very nice champions! I definitely see use out of Murk!

Jexik commented:

Keep in mind that Units are considered adjacent to a Vine Wall if they're on a VW too, so...

chardris77 commented:

That had slipped my mind. Murk is definitely going in my deck.

Scapemage921 commented:

Nice tip Jexik! Murk seems really cheap for what he does, especially at range. Very cool :)

I wish Horrific Vomit was rolled at the beginning of your movement phase, that way you can plan more ahead.

But both are really cool. Vomitus's art is just....jeez, amazing!!
